I had such a great experience at this hostel, the rooms are clean and modern and the showers have hot water (yay!!) The owner really goes out of his way to make sure everyone staying there feels included and has a positive experience. Right across the road from the speed boat to Koh Phagnan for the full moon party. Loved it and would definitely return! :)

Very clean and made for the social. Pool table and table tennis plus a large area for social shindigs. Beds were clean and comfortable and the dormitory area was beautiful. All amenities were high quality. Staff were helpful and gave good information. Definitely geared towards a young and fun crowd.

I spent 2 nights here - the dorm room is immaculate, it is new so everything is fresh and clean and they have 2 air con units in the room. The owners are also incredibly lovely, honest and helpful. Great for any traveler to stay in. Also go to the Thai place at the front the food is great and very cheap!

After spending 6 months traveling through various parts of Thailand and coming across this hostel, I couldn't have been more pleased. The management, service and advice proved to be invaluable during my stay on Koh Samui and the help and friendliness of the staff was fantastic.

I stayed at so many hostels during my time in Thailand and had problems with extra charges, no english being spoken, dodgy rooms, things breaking, and out of all of these problems and more, I had none at this hostel!

During my stay in Thailand I staying in some crazy, crazy places. But if you are looking for somewhere practical and decent to stay, you honestly cannot go wrong staying here.

If you want to stay somewhere easy going, cheap, clean, good quality and in a fantastic location for the full moon parties, nightlife and daytime tourist activites of Koh Samui, look no further than this hostel.

Highly recommend staying here! You will regret it if you don't!

We stayed here for 4 nights, after leaving a different hostel on the island. We were so happy and relieved to arrive at this one! Incredible wifi, the most cleans rooms I've stayed in in Asia and the staff were beyond friendly - they organise nights out and social gatherings, if that's the kind of thing you like. Air conditioning was reliable and plug sockets always working. Moreover, the hostel is in the ideal position to get the boat to Full Moon on Koh Phangyan. An absolutely wonderful stay, would 100% return if I were to go to Samui again.

A really clean, tidy and modern hostel with great bathroom facilities, a good bed, free WiFi and a pool table and a ping pong table outside and all for a great price per night. A restaurant at it's entrance, the beach just across the road and a few bars and shops all within a minutes walk, this place is perfectly situated and the staff are the friendliest people I've met, who'll help you with anything you might need.

I stayed at Samui Backpacker Hotel the first week it opened. The staff were amazing, the other guests were super friendly. The communal area makes it easy to hangout and meet new people. I highly recommend staying there if you are on Samui!
